Guide for use:Help on this term

CODES 1 and 2 refer to specified types of restraint and should be used when data providers are capable of disaggregating mechanical restraint events from physical restraint events.

CODE 3 represents combined unspecified mechanical and/or physical restraint and should only be used when data providers are unable to disaggregate mechanical restraint events from physical restraint events.

  • This data element is used in conjunction with the data element: Specialised mental health service—number of restraint events, N[NNN] to gain information about the number and type of restraint events.
  • Aggregate totals for the number of restraint events should be reported against the appropriate restraint type (including 0 where no events of that restraint type occurred), with use of the supplementary code where a particular restraint type is not applicable (e.g. when reporting CODE 3, use the supplementary value for CODES 1-2).
